A Disappointing Return visit after Renovations.
We visited this resort many times over the 16 years we have been vacationing in Mexico, going back to when our kids were little. It had for a time become one of our favorites, then it was time to refresh and we were there the day they closed the doors for complete renovation. We looked forward to going when complete. Finally after more than a year, it was reopening. So we exchanged via RCI into a 2 bedroom. We enjoyed our time and many aspects of the resort but there were also some very disappointing aspects as well.
Check in for RCI members is at Frist Club, way in back of resort, but no one at front desk knew this so utter confusion resulting in long delays after a long ride. We had even suggested that is how they used to do it, but no one would listen...anyway after much time it was figured out and we had to walk quite a distance to First Club, just seemed far due to being tired. We got there and had to wait there as well, it is a nice area with a bar, couches, jacuzzi, etc. and you can upgrade to use this area which includes 20 minutes of use of computers for only $15/p/d/p. We did not do that...We felt expensive for a small area, with minimal benfits..
They finally got us to a room after we had lunch and such about 3 ish. They put us in Rm. 660 & 658..., 2 bedroom lock off, but they tried to just give us a one bedroom, which did not make me happy at all. Not that we needed all that space since was large but it is the principal and what I paid for and exchanged for. They said well if you do not have other people coming, we told them totally irrelevant unless you are wiling to give us a discount or something so we got our 2 bedroom. Nice room but mini bars empty, coffee maker in one room dirty..cups with lipstick on sides, eww. no shampoo, soap etc, in bathrooms. Okay we figured no biggie we will just call...well after 2 or 3 calls and over 3 hours later they arrived to fix the problems..sounds like service not going to be so good or maybe just heavy check ins. We will see. We tried to pay for the All Inclusive upon check in at First Club but girl had no clue how to do that or how much, I showed her my RCI paperwork , she said oh just come back monday..okay.
The unit itself is rather nice, on Grand Royal Level, modern, new, 3 bathrooms, one with special showerhead, rainfall, hand held and spray outs, story on that later but looked good with a soaking tub to boot. Modern toilets. Hairdryer holders but no hairdryers...weird. ( They did put the hairdryers in the day before we were leaving, beter late thena never) Spacious unit...with lots of closet space and draws and full length mirrors. King size bed in master, 2 end tables, 2 closets and a safe in one, iron and ironing board, sliders onto small balcony with hot tub, will try that later..plasma tv's in bedroom and living room, even a computer and printer in room but have to pay high fees for internet so I used my laptop and internet stick instead. Living room had nice couch, chairs, table for 6, but that was sort of crowded in...mini kitchen area, with coffee maker,microwave, mini refrig., small sink, shelves, and 4 bottles of liquor, tequila, rum, scotch and vodka. Another bathroom off living room, smaller but nice. Then the lock off which had 2 twin beds...another coffee maker, safe,closets, and another bathroom..with a door that either closed shower or closet, or if you left open there was glass and you could take a shower and watch tv, hubby figured that out...crazy to me LOL. Well the room is nice so should be good despite a few glitches today.
We went to buffet for dinner and there had been quite a few changes there, newer, lighter furniture. Buffet area all new, totally changed. Clean as a whistle, special air things at entrance to keep out bugs etc..and UV lights for some health thing. The variety was also quite plentiful. They even had sugar free desserts. It was neat, clean and continually replaced. Service was timely and efficient and friendly. Drinks were good, not too strong nor too weak. After dinner we went to the new lounge, open air, quiet, comfy with couches, chairs, tables and bar. There is also the Palapa bar beachside, which has loud music and a disco of sorts for dancing and such. This new lounge area is where they used to put on the shows and also where they put on shows if raining...some nights they had entertainment for a bit, like Karoake etc. We liked the new lounge but did not care for the shows being outside in open area outside restaurant.
The pool remains on smaller size despite I belive being made bigger but for size of resort might be small in high season thought there is talk of an adult pool. There are palapas on the beach and lounge chairs and you get towel cards for your towels. There are also Cabanas on the beach but those are for Royal Club members, thought we were in those rooms it must be members. There is no service by pool or on beach you have to go to bar to get your own drinks.
The grounds are nice, mostly maintained though there were quite a few areas of broken , unkempt tiles etc..and concrete and at a newly refurbished resort uh huh. We also noted some areas about the resort where roofs and overhangs had not been fixed, the lounge is open air but sheetrocked, so if you know the climate in the tropics not gonna hold up long for that matter many places it was peeling, falling off and actual holes seen. The bathroom by the towel hut and also on opposite side of buffet restaurant always smelled of urine and many times toilets were actually leaking and they were not the newer model toilets.
The timeshare guys were at work and tried many times to get us to attend, we opted out, they were offering discounts on tours or massages. We told them we would consider attending for a discount on AI fees. They told us the timeshare presentation was for our benefit not theirs and we would want what they had, we smiled said have a great day, no way Jose! They asked us everyday but as the days went we had more issues so we were not a tad interested.
They have two a la carte restaurants, and you could attend both but with reservations and would be possible to go more than once but we also opted out of that. Los Olivios, the Italian Restaurant has been remarakably changed over, it now has indoor and outdoor seating, nice ambiance and decent food. The service for us was just fine but we did hear complaints of some others going one night and it being very short staffed. We enjoyed our night at Los Olivios, despite no top shelf alcohol, only national drinks, no martinis...oh well..Then there is the Mexican a la carte, Las Haciendas, it is open air over by palapa bar where they also have the disco and nightly snacks like fries, hamburgs etc... The decor is similar to before, menu sounds good, lot of Mexican choices but alas, I had a dish that was in a mocajate, arrechera tacos but oh my so very dry and not very flavorful. The mocajate concept for serving dish would be only appeal for most. Hubby's meal was just so so as well. Service was just fine. We decided thought that the best was the Italian then the buffet. All in all for the price of the AI, the food was good, plentiful, much variety, clean, well presented, well maintained buffet and worth the cost.
The beach was long, hard , packed sand, water temp. warm, waves varied...very nice clean beach. Venders yes, but not aggressive and they also have on site areas if you wish to just go there and shop on the beach. With a little bargaining, prices were good.
There is an onsite store for things you may have forgotten or need aspirin,sunblock, pepto etc..also some snack foods and also souveniours. Prices reflective of resorts. Across the street, easily walkable is a mall Paradise Village Mall where there are lots of restaurants, fast food places, shopping, a play area for kiddies, and even a small grocery store with pricey items but many desirable imported things. We spent some time at this mall, met up with some friends, chatted and had ice cream, from of all places McDonalds, which was great, soft serve and closest to me is over an hour. It was fun to meet with friends and spend some time. We had wanted to go to the crocodile reserve for lunch, Crocodilario, but it was closed, so hoping it will be open in Jan. when we return. I actually did some "me" shopping this trip. I broke down and bought some clothes in my current size, bigger than I was which I said I was not doing but so be it. I also bought some wedge heels. I love heels but have not walked in them since breaking my hip but the wedge style seems more secure for me, so I went for it. All hubby's treat, what a guy! All this shoping was done either in town in Puerto Vallarta or at Paradise Mall.
Our disappointment came with many issues in the room along with service. Any service you needed for room, ice, mini bar, towles, etc...the service was either incredibly slow ( like hours) or non-existent. The same issues would occur day after day. One day we were told they could not bring ice to us as they had a lot of check in's, so it might be a few hours. We said we would get it ourself, oh no, you just have to wait...forget it we went down to bar.
The minbar was rearely stocked, no one told us, but in writing this review apparently it is only every other day, even then we did not get that. We had to call and wait and wait for 3 sodas and 4 waters, the 2 existing beers stayed there all week. Seems like no biggie till you are wanting to nap or what have you but you are waiting for someone. Frustrating.
The Master bath with the awesome shower thing...ugh...not enough water pressure for it to even work, all that worked was the overhead shower...crazy what a waste. The other showers were different and worked okay water pressure wise but..use extremem caution. I almost fell the first shower as without you realizing the showers leak a lot, like enough to fill bathroom floor and head under door out into hallway...why? They have glass enclosures which are not abutted at all, gaps of at least 1/4 inch everywhere. So after this we laid towels down and took as fast a shower as possible. Told front desk but not very interested or concerned. One night we prepared to use the outdoor hot tub, hahah...no faucets...no water in it..hubby being a master plumber removed panel and found inlets and outlets for water underneath but again so little water pressure you might be there a few days filling it so we abandoned that idea. Unless you knew plumbing you would not even know how to go about this...another waste. Anything we told them about, that was an issue such as the showers, hot tub, minibar, etc. they just could have cared less. So service is a real low point here unless in restaurant or bar. There remains many areas that need refinement or refurbishing depite the recent overhaul. I am happy I am not an owner there as I would be upset with the poor service and also the room issues. Huuby states he is not going back, too many other resorts to go to, I would return but maybe just with girls for an inexpensive AI exchange.
The highlight of our trip actually was an on site thing. Vallarta Adventures has a person on site doing photo shoots with no obligation. We walked by so many times uninterested until one day they were going around with a baby crocodile and hubby wanted to hold it, so yes pictures. Later we went to see Ivan the photographer and said we would want those photos, 8 of them on a CD and also some printed ones as our grandson has a fascination with crocodiles, so to see his grandparents holding one would be awesome. After much conversation, we decided to do the no obligation photo shoot. We met Ivan at 9:30 am, we did not want sunset pictures...well what fun we had...posing, having fun, laughs etc....it was the best. Ivan took hundreds of photos but yet seemed like so few as we had such fun..we ended up so impressed with his personality and ability to get us to pose, laugh, be serious etc...and his ability as a photographer, that we purchased a package and he was prepared with many options. We are now the proud and happy owners of a website with our pictures...a couple of DVD's with our favorite pics., some printed pics, the croc pics and DVD's, and a hard cover photo book with our 20 favorite photos. We made memories of a lifetime with this and we also make a new friend. Now we would like to do something like this when the family comes, 3 generations...that would be so neat, but I would want it to be at my favorite resort or my second favorite ( or both) so will have to work on that.
So in synopsis, the resort is renewed with some things left to do, some service issues to work out and some major bathroom issues to deal with. Service for me is what makes me return to a resort,along with spacious nice rooms even if dated. These rooms were not dated, quite nice if only everything functioned. Clean, yes everything was clean no doubt. The food a huge update for buffet and Italian Restaurant very nice. The beach is nice. The area is very convenient and nice area. For the price this is a decent exchange thru RCI, and well worth the AI fees which are quite low. Nothing top quality but tasty, pleasently presented food etc. There is nowhere there with free wifi, so you must pay fees or do the First Club, an upgrade to use computers in that area for short periods. Confusion between hotel and timeshare owners seems to be a problem that existed before and continues. Timeshare units by the way do have balconies, unlike hotel units. So I think a 3 or 3.5 rating, nice new rooms but many nonfunctioning things, good beach, decent food, clean and well presented, good service in restaurants and bars, but in room not good. Check in and out long process with much confusion. All in all an okay week vacation stay. One nice touch is despite room upgrades and such, the resort has kept some old fell Mexican charm.

Stayed for one week at this beautiful resort and want to make plans to return next year. Booked Royal and I had found it for the same price as a regular room. It really isn't needed although we did enjoy a few perks.
Checkin - arrived in mid afternoon with Westjet vacations and we were the only ones arriving at this hotel at this time. I showed my confirmation to the bellboy and asked if there was a special place I was to check in as it clearly specified Royal Service. He pointed me to the front desk which was no big issue as there were no other people waiting anyway. So again I showed the confirmation to the desk clerk and he checked his records and gave me room 638 which was in the section I would expect for Royal Service and gave us blue bands for our wrists . After going to the room decided to go to the 7th floor to check out the lounge, and restaurant and met Gabriela and Seul who quickly informed us that they had been waiting for us and we were supposed to have checked in with them. Oh well, blue bracelets were cut off and we received black and white ones (that matched more of our clothes!!!) and we received a listing of the amenities that the Royal Service granted us.

Rooms - as mentioned we were in room 638 which was right in front of the elevators but really not very noisy at all. I was concerned about that but only noticed the noise one night when the hotel was very full of nationals and they were partying in the lounge but only til about midnight. Hallways are not enclosed and overlook the lobby and the lounge area. Rooms were very comfortable and even though there wasn't much space for hanging up clothes, there were lots of drawers - 3 in each night table, 3 in the closet and a nice counter/desk area. Bed was very hard but still slept great. Yes would have liked a balcony but it certainly didn't wreck our vacation. View was beautiful from the window. Basket of fruit was on the table and the bar fridge contained 4 waters, 1 pepsi, 1 7 up and 2 beer and was refilled each day. Never used the coffee maker however my sister in the next room did and we went across the street to the little grocery store to pick up some milk to keep in the fridge for her coffe as she hates powdered creamer.
Bathroom was very nice with a bowl sink and beautiful huge shower. Even had 6 drawers on the wall with a counter on top for toiletries which I thought was great.Had all of the usual toiletries, 2 washcloths, 2 hand towels and 4 large bath sheets,
Had turn down service each night when they would turn down the sheets, change your towels if required and leave you 2 Hershey chocolate kisses per day.
Food - Ate at the buffet most days and always found something I enjoyed. Usually had fruit, hashbrowns, sausage, yogurt and the best sweet buns for breakfast, and a variety of things for lunch and dinner. Sometimes food was a little cool but that quite often happens with buffets. Tried to go early for each of the meal times to beat the rush and got great service.
Ate at the Italian one night and it was wonderful food however the room is enclosed and has no airconditioning, just fans so was very hot and humid. Men did not enjoy having to wear long pants here. Never ate at the Mexican however heard good and bad about it. Ate one breakfast and one dinner in the Royal Service restaurant and enjoyed both. Felt kind of weird as we were the only ones there for breakfast and there was only one other occupied table when we had dinner. Breakfast was a buffet like downstairs however much less variety. Did find though the berries and food were better. Dinner was fantastic with great service. Portions may have been smaller but we certainly ate enough anyway.Great airconditioning up there too.
Beach - Beautiful - could walk for a very long distance and found lots of shells. Waves were fun to play in and having the use of the cabana's was nice for a nap. Yes there were vendors walking by but after a no thanks, most left you alone. Absolutely no rocks and very little grass in the water so was great to walk in. Sand did get very hot to walk on in the afternoon though and noticed lots of people running across the sand to get to the cooler wet sand.
Pool - There were 2 pools - suposedly one adult and one for children but found that the nationals when they were there did not observe this and there were children in the pool, The hotel was not very busy especially on the Tuesday and Wednesday - felt like we had the pool to ourselves and the great friends that we met.
Bars - the hotel has 2 bars (I guess 3 if you include the one in the Royal section although we never had anything from there) The beach bar had the best drinks and the service was wonderful as well. You would walk up thinking you were never going to be served due to the amount of people there and were served in just a couple of minutes. No need for your own cups either as they served the drinks in larger hard plastic glasses.
The only complaint I would have is that there was only a couple of times that there was servers walking around and when you did get a drink, you didn't get a napkin with so there was constantly a ring of water on the table from the glass sweating in the heat.
Timeshare sharks - yes there is a time share (vacation club ownership, whatever) desk right in front of the elevator so you do see them all of the time however after the 1st couple of refusals for their offers, they left you alone other than to greet you each and everytime you walked by.
Activity group - because this is a smaller hotel, it seemed like people were there to relax and although the activity group tried, the actual activities were pretty lame. They had the usuals like water areobics, water polo, bocci ball, ping pong tables, lazy game(where they would ask you to guess how many items were in a container and the winner would get a t-shirt) etc. At night these same people would be in the lounge for things like "Mr Occidental" (which was fun to watch but not so fun to participate in - my brother-in-law was volunteered by his wife and ended up having to do things like a "sexy dance" for over 1 1/2 hours and only the person picked as the best won a t-shirt), kareoke, etc. Best show was a 60's, 70's production show that was great. Some evening entertainment is held in the lounge and some are at the theatre in front of the beach.

Overall had a great trip and would go back in a heartbeat. Please feel free to send me a message if any questions,

It is a smaller resort (aprox 300 rooms) but that doesn't matter to me. It only seems small if you are used to staying in resorts where there are thousands of people. I looked over many reviews before deciding on this resort. Most were positive and I took some of the negatives with a grain of salt. People had complained of kids in the pool, crowded,but then you have to consider the time of year you are travelling. I saw the pictures and was hopeful those where our rooms but thought maybe they were just showing the royal club rooms. I had a very easy check in and said I was hopeful to be higher up. The clerk said they were full but he would be more than happy to help me the next day. When we got to our room, I was pleasantly surprised. The rooms were very modern, spacious and clean. Nice bathroom with glass shower. Why would I want to upgrade with rooms like this. There are no balconies but it didn't bother me as I don't spend much time in the room anyway. I would drink my coffee sitting by the ocean. I thought the food was really good, there was a great selection which should suit anyones needs, even for those who like plain bland food. The fruit was amazing. The service from all the staff was excellent. I was having trouble trying to figure something out to buy wifi, when a man came up to me to help. He was very kind. When I asked him his name, he told me he was the assistant manager of the hotel. He never hesitated to help me. I would observe the people and could see how hard they would be working. The beach was beautiful, nice and clean, big sandy beach, plenty of chairs. I was so impressed with this resort and would go back again. You weren't harassed too much by the vendors but of course they will walk by. I loved the tattoo man, he was very kind. This is his living so I thought, why not, what's a henna tattoo to me, where it can feed his family. My only complaints, but maybe a blessing in disguise (as it kept my 13 yr daughter active instead) was the lack of internet. We got 15 min per day thru westjet, and on the last day I purchased 24 hrs for $12.00. It would be nice if they stocked water everyday as that is the only thing I had a problem with. I stayed in a 5 star there 2 years ago and this resort was far better. I travel a few times per year and would highly recommend this resort. I can't wait to go back!

Room Tip: If you want outside access, you need a ground floor but you would probably have more noise

Excellent service and friendly, helpful staff. The buffet was over the top from someone who does not usually a fan. Selection and variety of food was so good and the veranda dining overlooking the beach and pools was especially great.Thanks to Eric and the other fine waiters who made our trip so enjoyable.
Rooms were comfortable and clean. Hats off to the maids for a great job.
Easier access to wifi would have been helpful.

First time to Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta, Puerto Vallarta. Although it started off on the wrong foot, we ended with a fabulous vacation. We are 1st Club members of the Occidental Vacation Club and there were several items we were disappointed with in the 1st club reception as well as the response for some of our requests. After taking our concerns directly to the Director of the Club, we saw MANY of these concerns diminish and taken care of in a timely manner. We want thank the Director and all the staff for their hard work and efforts for making our vacation and 12th Anniversary a memorable one. The 1st club room we had was fabulous (King bed with lots of space), and would stay there again. Loved the view from our balcony too. The food was excellent except we were disappointed with the Mexican restaurant. We loved the activities personnel and especially Gabby who kept us active in the pool. The only true complaint I would have is that there wasn't an ADULT only pool as stated. Hopefully they will be working on that for our next visit. We look forward to returning in the near future to see the continued improvements.

Not quite a 4 star
Food was good
Hospitality fantastic
Wi fi 56.00 a week or if your close enought to the hotel next door it's free
Beach is exceptional but the water is not clear like the Carribian
Outstanding service by Erik, Ricardo and Saira at the Buffet
Outstanding to Gabrial at the Activity Centre
Exceptional GM Havier who runs a close, tight knit staff
Only 2 ala cartes
Real disappoint although it's their country but th Nationals would come in on the weekends in droves and were very loud, leT theIr kids scream in the pool and adults were no better yelling up and down the halls of the hotel instead of talking on the phone on in theIr own rooms.
I hope this helps.

Room Tip: Stay on the main level if you want access to outside

We just came back from the Occidental Grand Nuevo Vallarta, and were not disappointed. The resort was beautiful, the food was fabulous and the people were great! The people bent over backwards to help us out, or go out of their way to make sure everything was going great. Even the sand in front of the resort was groomed, and they had people cleaning up constantly. I can't help but wonder what else could we have asked for??? Great job people of the Occidental!!!
